Observing The Loner Poem by Simon Collins

Observing The Loner

Rating: 4.2

He committed the highest sin
unspeakable in its shame
to burn the genetic bridge
releasing maternal pain
he became a psychics friend
his home at the village edge
outcast a ghost alone
indulgence fed his head
no blame no change no alter
acceptance slaps the face
pleasure is disguised
yet love guides his inner space
I watch him slowly standing
straight from weighted years
a man without a mother
silence in the face of fears
a family is like a hat that
sometimes finds a home
but travelers are their own kind
separate they will roam
our mothers they are aloft
worshipped for love bestowed
but save a thought for the loner
his care unjustly sold

Exceptionally gorgeous, i feel an affinity to this work (never truly felt like that about a write) but this embraces so many personal thoughts and emotions of my families severed painful ties... my stomach hurts after reading this... so to me a resounding success... sometimes the genetic bridge needs a darn good torching for sure, tis better to stand alone in comfort than with a gaggle of trouble...bravo...tyvm karen

Sometimes the principles and values for which one stands for and fights doggedly make him a loner in the crowd without any support from family and friends.It is particularly painful if one does not get love from mother..- - Poet says - -travelers are their own kind separate they will roam- - - - - -hats off to the loner who fights all odds to stand up for his principles., - - - - - - - 10/10
